Happy new Year!!
I was sitting by the pond yesterday morning and got these wildlife pictures.
Patti got this one while I was snoozing,
Later in the afternoon, Dennis and I took the Kayaks over to the Colorado River. Since the jeep is unreliable at the present time we put the boats in the back of Dennis’s truck
We decided to check out a slough just south of Ehrenburg, AZ.
It was Dennis’ first time in a kayak and I think he enjoyed it.
At this time of year there isn’t a lot of wildlife but I did get some pictures of these Crested Herons.
As we paddled along close to the edges we could see underwater dust trails as large fish scooted out of our way.
Sometimes we could see movement in the cattails as other creatures moved through them unseen. On a couple of occasions we could smell skunk but never saw anything of them. I am sure that later in the season the wildlife activity will increase.
We had a great day playing on the water.
I went out to turn on the waterfall this morning. Fortunately I had a camera with me. I was about half way there and noticed this hawk sitting on top of the fall.
I don’t know what kind of hawk it is. I couldn’t find any pictures on the internet that matched. If you know what kind it is let me know.
